Today I have been working on the presentation for my dissertation talk today at university. I want to release this under a creative commons license so others may learn from my work. This then reminded me that ‘hey I am at university, they own everything I do’. This may sound a bit strange, but if you are at university check as I am sure you will have something similar!
Anyway, back to creative commons, I did a bit of searching originally as I wasn’t sure about licensing issues as I had used other peoples work in my presentation: company logos, a couple of random images from a Google Image search, and LOLCats. Although I have noted this in my presentation, I was unsure on how releasing this under a creative commons license would effect this. The company logos I think are ok, as this would be defined as fair use. The LOLCats site T&C clearly says not reuse is allowed, but seeing how plenty of other people reuse them I think that can be safely ignored. The Google Image searches are a bit trickier though.
The main post I came across was Creative Commons license for presentations? This has a good discussion about creative commons licenses, and the issue of other work.
